…Amosun Inspects First Ijebu Ode Flyover
Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, Saturday inspected the flyovers under construction in Ijebu Ode and urged the construction firm to redouble its efforts in order to complete the projects in a record time.
The governor also monitored the monthly environmental sanitation where he urged law enforcement officers to arrest and prosecute offenders of the exercise in accordance with the law. The two flyovers, according to a statement by media aide of the governor, Funmi Wakama, are located at Mobalufon junction, along Sagamu-Benin road and Bobasua/Lagos Garage.
When completed, the Mobalufon bridge will end the regular carnage on the expressway as vehicles moving to Ijebu Ode will now use the flyover instead of risking head-on collision with those coming from the Benin end of the expressway. The flyover descends into the 6-lane international standard Moblufon-Folagbade-Imepe-Ibadan Road being constructed by the current administration.
Commuters along the Ondo-Benin Road will not experience any traffic gridlock at Bobasua/Lagos Garage as another flyover is being constructed at the T-junction. Amosun expressed satisfaction with the quality and progress of the work on the highway.
Meanwhile no fewer than 23 persons have been remanded in Ibara prisons in Abeokuta for violating the Ogun State Environmental Sanitation Exercise order.
Sunday Vanguard gathered that three Chinese national were part of forty others caught by men of law enforcement agencies during the monthly sanitation exercise which took place across the state. It was further gathered that all the culprits were brought to face the magistrate of a mobile court which found them guilty and subsequently ordered them to pay fines before they could regain
their freedom. But, the three Chinese and 37 others reportedly paid the fines, while twenty-three others could not meet up, and were therefore ordered to be taken to prison.
